    As someone who has sensory issues, being barefoot (with or without socks), is awful. I hate it. The only time I ever have barefeet is in the shower, in bed, at the pool (OMG that makes me want to vomit) and at the beach. Otherwise I have shoes of some description on.

    I have had to take my shoes off at other people's houses, I deal with it by sitting down and not moving until I am leaving. Being barefoot makes me want to vomit and cry. The latter I have done a few times

    When we were looking to buy a house a few months ago I would say 50% of the houses we viewed asked us to remove shoes before entering. I only saw one person refuse - A teenage girl with her mum wearing combat style boots.

    I really hate my feet so would be pretty uncomfortable having to take my shoes off at someone else's house
    Plus there is the anxiety of do my feet smell.
    We don't wear our shoes in the house under normal circumstances but if someone is coming over that's not family I will put shoes on so they don't see my feet

    My in laws have a shoes off house but it's not enforced. There's a pile of shoes by the front door. I would find it really odd if I was asked to take my shoes off somewhere!!!

    We take our shoes off at home. I don't make other people do it, though I will say yes if they ask and I wouldn't find it weird if someone asked me to take my shoes off at their house.

    Can I ask how people with shoes off policies manage their kids playing during the day? My 3 year old DS spends his entire day running inside and outside the house. There's no way he'd stop every time and take shoes on and off. Same with my DDs running to the trampoline after school.

    Do your kids put shoes on every time they go outside and then take them off again?

    We have a no shoes house, but I never ask people to take them off. If they do I appreciate it and if they ask I say "yes, thanks", but I don't ask if they don't do it. I think it's polite to check when you go to someone else's house.

    We have dogs, so the door is closed big yep, just on and off as they go in and out. He's generally wearing socks inside so he just slips his Velcro sneakers on that stay at the door.

    And that's why I don't push it or ask, I think that's totally fair enough if you have a reason for not wanting to take them off.

    I imagine being put in the position of having to say "no I'd prefer not to" would be incredibly awkward.
